The second race of the European CIK-FIA Championship of KZ class opened with the pole position of the Kosmic Kart-Vortex driven by Simo Puhakka and so, as happened already on the first round in Sarno, our chassis signed the best lap time of the event (51,778).
In the four heats, our drivers, Puhakka and Hajek, won one heat each, although in the final grid they were slightly late due to a few accidents that stopped them at least once.
In the final, Hajek, jumped from the fourteenth position on the starting grid and performed a tenacious comeback which allowed him to sign the best lap of the final, ending in sixth place.
With the scores gained in Genk, Hajek is currently third in the championship rankings, with two rounds still at the end (Spain 11/6 and Sweden 30/7).

The first round of KZ2 class was good for our drivers, Axel Bengtsson and Oliver Rasmussen, at their first experience in the European Championship in the shifter class. Both of them did a great job, with Oliver performing a very good comeback in the final, gaining scores, and ended to the thirteenth place.
The next engagement for our KZ2 drivers is scheduled on the first weekend of July with the second round of the European Championship at the French circuit of Le Mans. The Racing Department, however, will be on track in mid-June already in Spain for the round of the European Championships reserved for KZ, OK and OKJ categories.
